Higher Education Minister Dr. Hussein Ba-Salamah said in the Kazakh capital, Astana, on Monday that Yemen's humanitarian situation requires exceptional efforts from its brotherly countries and international friends in general.
Addressing the first summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on science and technology in Astana, Ba-Salamah said Yemen is "facing a war imposed on it by the Saleh-Houthi coup militias and is facing lethal epidemics too."
"For more than two years,the Yemeni government has been operating from the temporary capital, Aden, to alleviate the severity of the catastrophe that the coup Saleh-Houthi alliance inflicted," he said.
He asserted the government's disfavor of war saying "we extended our hands for peace in the consultation of Geneva and Kuwait" but the militias avoid the settlement.
He said that the Iran-backed coup militias "bear historical and legal responsibility for things ended up like in Yemen; the state and economic collapse and the devastation of institutions."
The militias and their foreign backers, he said, "aim to destabilize the whole region."
The militias waged war destroyed the state's basic infrastructure, civil, military and cultural, he said. "It plunged the country in a military conflict that devastated everything and caused the death of tens of thousands of Yemenis; the displacement of hundreds of thousands others; arrest of tens of thousands persons on the account of their political attitudes; and the country's biggest humanitarian catastrophe.
